Cats can be spayed/neutered as early a 6 months of age. While dogs can be done at 6 months as well, there are individual recommendations specific to your dog’s breed/size and lifestyle that may influence this decision. A consultation with one of our veterinarians can help determine what age is best. An examination is done prior to surgery to help determine whether your pet is healthy enough to undergo the surgical procedure. A pre-anesthetic blood screen is recommended prior to undergoing anesthesia and surgery. Current vaccinations are also required at the time of surgery.
This is a blood panel that is run here in the clinic prior to surgery. The pre-anesthetic blood screening is done to assure safety during surgery and the ability to heal following surgery.
Procedures involving sutures typically require them to be removed in 10 to 14 days following the surgery.
No, there is no advantage to letting your pet have one litter. However there are plenty of advantages to having you pet spayed or neutered. These advantages include decreasing the chances of breast tumors later in life, decreasing the chance of cystic ovaries and uterine infections later in life, decreasing the desire to roam the neighborhood, decreasing the incidence of prostate problems later in life, helping prevent spraying and marking, and also decreases the surplus of unwanted puppies and kittens.
